Panel 2 (Room 207)

Apocalypse in Anime [F+]

Rogue technology run amok. Invaders appearing suddenly on the national doorstep. Plagues stripped mankind of their humanity, but not always the biological kind. The end of an era, and of a people. These are stories of the End Times, and all of them carry with them a connotation for pain and suffering. Japan has spent the better part of the past 60 years coping with these fears, and often uses storytelling and media to make sense of them. This panel will explore the idea of apocalypse from a cultural standpoint, contrasting both East and West ideas of often the same stories.
